Estate.com Changes Hands in the 2nd Biggest Sale of the New Year to Top This Week's Sales Chart 

In the third six figure sale reported in the opening month of 2013, Estate.com has changed hands for $165,000 in a deal brokered by UpMarketDNS.com. That puts Estate.com at #2 on our Year-to-Date Top Sales Chart, trailing only Booker.com ($375,000), and at #1 on our latest weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart.

CellphoneCases.com took the #2 slot with a $75,000 sale at  DomainNameSales (DNS), a venue that had a hand in five of the top ten sales and seven chart entries overall. They joined forces with Afternic.com to sell WalkinTubs.com at $69,000, a name that tied for third with Oar.com, sold for the same price at  Flippa.com.

Sedo rounded out the first five with Salledebain.com ("bathroom" in French) at $60,000. Sedo went on to pile up 10 of the 20 chart entries, including the only ccTLD on this week's leader board - #10 (tie) Connect.tv, a domain they sold for Claude Dauman of Domains90210.com for $25,000. That is the biggest country code sale reported so far in 2013.

By Ron Jackson

By holding the country codes to one place on the Big Board and shutting out the non .com gTLDs all together, the .coms enjoyed an an even more dominating romp than usual, sweeping 19 of the 20 chart positions. HuntingMoon.com contributed the .com blitzkrieg with their $29,500 sale of #7 FreeGayChat.com

3-letter domains continue to hold their historic appeal as evidenced by the three domains from that category on this week's elite list. In addition to Oar.com, that trio included Sedo's sales of #12 FXF.com an $20,400 and #13 XSD.com at $20,000.

Here is how the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, January 27:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value cash only sales that have been reported to us in the past week. This column is meant to be an educational tool, not a complete list documenting ALL high value domain sales. Such a list is impossible to produce because many sales are kept private at the insistence of buyers, sellers or both. Our procedure for verifying the accuracy of domain sales reports is available here.

For the many newcomers entering the domain industry we also want to point out that the reasons why a domain name sells for a certain price can be varied and are not always clear to those who are unfamiliar with the domain market. If you do not understand why specific domain names command the prices they do, you are likely to make unwise domain registrations or purchases. We highly recommend that you do some basic research before you buy anything! As a starting point we have built a sister site specifically for you at NameNewbie.com.
